Job search is important because people all over the world are looking for a job. It may be an extra job to supplement their income or it could be because they just want a change in their work environment. Many may even have joined the unemployment cue because of the downturn in the economy. Still there is work out there for those fortunate enough to use the right Job Search facility.
Finding the right job can sometimes be a hassle which is why having the right job search tool is so important.
Enter the Job Search Engine by Neuvoo!
Job Search By Neuvoo
I was very fortunate to be approached by someone from Neuvoo to place their job search engine on my blog. At first I incorporated it in the sidebar but I was so impressed with them that I’ve devoted a whole page to the Neuvoo job search engine. As you can see I can even place it within this very post.
You’ll notice at the end of the Job Search Engine on my Jobs Page that I’ve listed all the different countries where Neuvoo offer their job search facility. At the moment mine is showing jobs available in Australia. Once I work it out I should be able to set it to show jobs in a particular city of any country. That way I can target my local traffic.
I can even target a keyword, so on my photo blog I could show any photography related jobs. Yes, I will be offering their unique job search facility on my other blogs as well.
So, who are neuvoo? They’re an international job aggregator who launched in 2011. As you can see from the list on my job search page they’re available in 42 countries. They’re headquarters are in Montreal, Canada and a European office in Switzerland.
I like that they aggregate all jobs from employers’ career pages so job seekers can freely find all jobs available in their preferred area. A whole lot better than going onto multiple sites looking for their dream job.
I’d be really interested in anyones experience with neuvoo! Once I get the targeting bug worked out I’ll probably set up several job search pages linking to different countries, targeting those specific to those countries sending the most traffic.
The reason most people cloak their links is because everyone has told them that a link cloaker will improve their affiliate sales! They say that a lot of reason people don’t click on affiliate links is because they don’t trust those long ugly looking affiliate links.
Another reason for cloaking your links is to prevent those unscrupulous people from hijacking your links! This is all done in the hope of increasing your affiliate sales! Well, it seems that most of the link cloakers out there are failing their jobs. While they may be ‘prettifying’ those ugly affiliate links they’re failing in some other major areas.
This has lead me to trialling a new Affiliate Link Cloaker on my easy sports betting site. You can see that link cloaker in action in this post.
How Your Link Cloaker May Be Failing You
There are several ways that your link cloaker may be failing you. Let’s look at a few.
Browser Switching! I’ve never heard about browser switching before but apparently people do this to bypass potential affiliate links. According to their findings 1 in 10 people switch browsers.
Dead Links! If you’re like me and promote a lot of affiliates I think it’s safe to say that a lot of those links are now dead links. So instead of directing potential buyers to a sales page all they’re getting is a 404 page. Consequently any possible sale is lost. WP Link Shield, yeah that’s what the plugin is called, will instead direct those people to a sales page of your choice thereby maximising the possibility of sales.
Affiliate Links Banned! You’ve probably noticed that a lot of social media won’t let you post affiliate links on their sites. WP Link Shield does its job so well that it makes posting affiliate links on those sites possible and you can do it straight from your WordPress dashboard. Not only that, you can also attach those links to your own images.
Your List is Being Harvested! As we all know there are a lot of times when you try to exit a sales page only to be presented with some free offer which is being offered for your email address. So not only are you losing the sale but they’re leaching your list from you! You can put a stop to this.
Here are the main points for adding WP Link Shield to your blogging for money arsenal.

The following Million Dollar Tipping link is being cloaked by WP Link Shield. Clicking on that link will take you to the Million Dollar Tipping page. Check out the image below. What you’re seeing in the url is my cloaked link using the keywords of my choice. You can copy that link in whatever browser you want and it will continue to cloak my affiliate link effortlessly.
That’s how good WP Link Shield does its job. Does your link cloaker do its job as well? If not then perhaps it’s time you do something about it to improve your affiliate sales.
Whenever possible I will some of the ways I’ve used in my blogging for money venture. For the last month I’ve been trialling my.ayboll.com. You’ve probably seen the ads at the bottom of my posts. If not the image below is a screenshot of those ads. I had to take a screen shot because those ads no longer appear on this blog.
My.ayboll.com Review As A Revenue Earner
My.ayboll.com is supposed to look like content but earn like premium advertising. The idea of being able to earn like ‘premium advertising’ appealed to me so I decided to give it a go.
The only positive I could find was that it was very easy to install. In just under a month my.ayboll.com produced 43 clicks from 3216 views. I don’t know about you but I find that pretty low.
Even though they’re supposed to pay per click (PPC) none of those clicks produced any income. Nor did I get any revenue share. This isn’t all surprising as you only earn revenue from sales resulting from those clicks.
If I had earned even a cent per click I would have considered keeping those ads in the hope of some future revenue share but as that didn’t occur I’ve decided to give my.ayboll.com the flick.
One thing that I did love about my.ayboll.com is their reporting. Take the image below for an example.
It seems that desktops still rule the roost. Mobiles are catching up with close to 50% of the views and the tablets lagging way behind.
I believe that the blogging real estate below the post is pretty important. As such I feel that ads placed there should pay their way. I know that a lot of people are steering away from banner ads but I find that they’re still converting quite well. That’s why I’ve decided to give PeerFly a go.
